The corporate media spin goes on: "Michelle Obama Gets Unfriendly Welcome at NASCAR Race"
Note: Unfriendly (front page of www.aol.com )

It's only when you click on the link (and how many "Right"-minded people really will click on a Huffington Post link?) that you get the reality - the word "BOOED" shows up only then.

Seems like George W. Bush got an "unfriendly welcome" (media terms) only when the crowd didn't cheer like the fans at the Beatles' first U.S. concert, with teen girls fainting in his presence ...

1. i have a couple of friends who attended the race so i will

2. What do you expect from NASCAR fans?
A banjo serenade?

A laurel and hearty handshake?
